Water to Thrive – All Saint’s 3rd funded well is in progress
Your support allows us to provide clean water to communities in the Gonder Region of Ethiopia for up to 20 years. The All Saint’s sponsored well is part of a group of 22 projects that Water to Thrive is implementing with their partner in this region known as Ethiopian Orthodox Church – Development and Inter-Church Aid Commission. These 22 projects will provide daily access to clean, safe water for over 7,000 community members in over 1,300 households. The well should be in operation by the end of the year.
Included in the cost of these projects is hygiene and sanitation training for the community. Training is also provided to a local water committee (half women) that will be responsible for keeping the water project in good working order, as well as establishing a maintenance fund for on-going sustainability.
Shoes for Arctic Schools
The Northwest Arctic Borough School District serves eleven villages and approximately 1850 students. 90% of the students are Inupiaq Eskimo. This is a Title 1 school district which means most of the students are far below the poverty line and families struggle with basic needs due to the area’s remoteness, expense of supplies, and ability to live a sustainable lifestyle adhering to their cultural heritage. Subsistence hunting is a mainstay of daily life.
The All Saints outreach program hopes to raise enough funds through donations and corporate sponsorship to provide all NWABSD students from age 4 through 18 with a pair of shoes they would use within the school building. Basketball is key for kids in Alaska, just like football is king in Texas. Please join us as we build this new and exciting program! Donate online at All Saints Shoes for Arctic Schools.
$1390 has been raised so far!
